SAVE THE DATE: ETHIOPIA INVESTMENT SUMMIT 2012
Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
Dear Ethiopia Investor,
Seven out of the ten fastest growing economies in the world over the next five years will be in Africa. Ethiopia is at the forefront of this truly magnificent resurgence of the African continent. Precise Consult International, in partnership with a number of strategic global partners is organizing the Ethiopia Investment Summit 2012 to link global investors to Ethiopian opportunities.
Driven by market forces and economic policy reform, the Ethiopian economy has shifted into a trajectory of growth unseen in its long history. According to the Economist Intelligence Unit, Ethiopia will be the third fastest growing economy in the world this year. The nation has recorded 8 consecutive years of double-digit GDP growth underpinned by dynamic across-the-board expansions in agriculture, services, and industry. This achievement however, is only indicative of the immense opportunities– not just in raw materials and mining but also in energy, transport, infrastructure, manufacturing, agribusiness, and services. With a population of 85 million strategically located at the crossroads of Africa, the Middle East and Europe, Ethiopia is truly a rising African Tiger Economy.
The Ethiopia Investment Summit 2012 aims to gather up to 300 senior business executives from Ethiopia, global corporations, domestic and foreign investors who are either doing business or considering doing business in Ethiopia. The major goals of the summit are to introduce Ethiopia as an investment and business destination, to help investors understand the macro and micro level industry dynamics driving long term opportunities, and to create concrete networking and deal making opportunities.
The Summit is timed to complement the gathering of the World Economic Forum (WEF) for Africa, which will be held in Addis Ababa from May 9-11 (see http://www.weforum.org). As such, the Summit will offer a once in a lifetime opportunity to network and interact with an impressive gathering of some of the world’s most interesting and powerful business, civil society and government leaders.
